Body Cleansing - Cleanse with Solids
To Purge Toxins Out
The idea of cleanses are appealing to most people except they do not
want to go the starvation or liquids only route so they try supplements
and teas with diet. These are okay but you can cleanse with moderate solids even
over a 2-4 week period.
I suggest you wean off caffeine before you start
this so that you are not taking any caffeine in prior to this diet. The headaches
from the withdrawal will make the diet harder on you.
Raw foods are the
best way to go but steamed and soups are also an excellent way to cleanse without
having to have liquids only or stop foods altogether.
My suggestion for
the raw food cleanse would be to work in juicing along with the meals.
would be a juice made from items such as dandelion, parsley, romaine lettuce,
strawberry, orange, grapefruit and coconut. If you have spirulina then you will
want to add this in as well.
Lunch would be a raw salad of mixed bitter
greens, blueberries, some nuts and seeds, balsamic vinegar and Udos oil. I would
avoid the use of heavy spices and stick with non sodium, garlic, peppers and such.
between meals would be a minestrone type soup made vegan with no starches or tubers.
Any veggies would be well chopped in to very small pieces and you would want to
include parsley, garlic, cloves, cilantro, spinach, tomato, chili peppers, mustard
greens and limes. Avoid carrots, peas and starchy choices. Go crazy with fresh
herbs such as rosemary, bay leaves, basil, oregano, sage and celery leaves. Being
very liquid, you can have as much as you like and can also use this for meals.
would be similar to lunch but with the exception of adding a small amount of feta,
dry cottage cheese, goat cheese or yogurt to the meal for the good bacterias
they contain which will help in the cleanse. In addition you would take 1-2 Tbs
of Psyllium each day.
Water would be 2-4 liters per day and very essential
to the process not only for the flush but also to help release the toxins without
the nausea or dizzy side effects that extreme cleanse can cause.
who simply cannot do this, then you can try including a small portion of 4 oz
daily of steamed or grilled poultry, fish or eggs. Keep it all very plain, again
only using natural flavoring like garlic, onion, cracked pepper and Cheyenne pepper.
These along with parsley are excellent aids in cleansing.
You can purchase
some diuretic teas but take them sparingly to avoid dehydration. Simple water
loss is not the whole point and being well hydrated is very important so the diuretic
effect of the foods is already enough without adding too many teas per week.
are many reasons people seek cleanses such as acne, candida, IBS, diet fluctuations
in high frequency, previously on medications or weight loss. These suggestions
above will help you work toward a cleanse that suits your needs and body type.
Hunger is not suggested but can be a normal part of a cleanse, its all up to your
goals and requirements.
